Phoenix Novelist Mines Muses of Art and Writing with Lost Dutchman Novel

dutchman-and-the-devilWriters sometimes discover their muse on their own, but sometimes their muse finds them. Arizona artist-writer Pat Parish would probably tell you that her muse was art, but the story of Jacob Waltz and the legend that eternally swirls around the Lost Dutchman mine found her. Over a decade ago, Parish was taking a creative writing course and decided to try her hand at the story of the Lost Dutchman. The result was a trail of research and writing that could not satisfied until the completion and publishing of her first historical novel, Dutchman and the Devil: The Lost Story (EBookIt.com). Illustrated by the author, Parish’s Old West novel is a rollicking tale that adds another fine layer of intrigue to one of Arizona’s great legends of gold and greed.
